BARCELONA, THE JEWEL OF CATALONIA
A 19th century globe-trotter
An episode from the series PUTIPHAR'S TRAVEL GUIDE
In 19th century Barcelona, one cannot help but be astounded by the Casa Vicens, Güell Park and the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. Everywhere, Catalan modernism is bursting with colourful floral monuments. Culture, climate and gastronomy combine to make this metropolis outshine its rivals. Every evening is a festival with cobla music. From la Ribera to the Gothic Quarter, we wander through the most emblematic districts.
But Barcelona means also the beach, the sea, the long parallel streets full of history and anecdotes.
